Aubrey O’Day reportedly has clearance from Virgin America to bring her pets on board their airline for “mental health” reasons. Since the two dogs she travels with are classified as Emotional Support Animals, O’Day was able to get them on her flight this week while heading to San Francisco.
Virgin America allows passengers to travel with pets if a letter from a licensed mental health professional is written up. The airline apparently recognizes that mental health is just as real as any other medical condition and many people need a source of comfort — pets are known to help people battle everything from illnesses, loneliness, and mental disorders. When a doctor writes up the letter, it needs to verify that the passenger has a mental health-related disability.
What exactly Aubrey O’Day is suffering from isn’t released, but she proudly showed off her two dogs as they flew with her on Virgin America in the first class cabin. That had to be a new one for fellow passengers to experience.
A rep for the airline told TMZ that O’Day was “incredibly sweet and polite” and a “great guest.”
When Aubrey O’Day appeared on the latest “Celebrity Apprentice,” she had a tendency to be abrasive, controlling, and over-confident. She and “Celebrity Apprentice” winner, Arsenio Hall, had dramatic exchanges which often resulted in hard feelings. O’Day credited her enthusiasm for life and youthful spirit for her success. She got along well with fellow contestant, comedienne, Lisa Lampanelli, who was just as polarizing.
Will Aubrey O’Day share what the condition of her mental health is now that it’s common knowledge she needs her dogs to travel with her for that reason?
